East Coast in a Day, Batticoloa Sri Lanka, East Coast
Life on the East coast has its own character. The daily lives of the people in Batticoloa and the surrounding villages are woven mainly around fishing due to the surrounding water bodies, the tank, lagoon and the sea.
We invite you to experience the day from a local perspective: riding in a catamaran through the tank (village reservoir), visit a nearby village and see the day to day lives of the villagers. You will be welcomed into the home of a local family for a simple home cooked meal. With a heavy stomach and the sun shining down on you, you might want to unwind a little before you rally on. May we suggest a quick swim in the tank?
Before sunset, you can join the fisherman at the lagoon who will teach you the art of fishing. Try it out and let us know how many fish you caught!
We were very grateful to our travel advisors Nick and Sam Clark to have suggested some of the places we stayed at which were excellent
